2016 Top 10 Chenin Blanc Challenge

The Leopard’s Leap Culinaria Collection is a celebration of the harmony in which food and wine complement one another. Matching the finest in food with the finest in wine is the very reason behind this exquisite collection - to create optimal enjoyment through mutual enhancement.

in the vineyard : The grapes grow on bush vines with an average age of twenty years and an average yield of 4,8 tons per hectare. The unirrigated soils have a unique water-releasing capacity that favours good grape concentration.

about the harvest: 

Harvested at optimum ripeness.

in the cellar : After berry-sorting and de-stemming, grapes were crushed and pressed after a short period of skin contact. The juice was allowed to settle, then fermented at 18 degrees Celsius in 500-litre second-fill and third-fill French oak barrels. Barrels were topped up and the wine was allowed nine months' lees contact prior to blending and bottling. Before release, the wine was bottle-matured for four months.
